I've posted umpteen titles over time by the gifted French experimental electronic artist Lieutenant Caramel (aka Philippe Blanchard), though the material present on this rare split LP with French contemporaries La Sonorite Jaune takes a rather more single-minded approach to the deployment of surrealist sonics than his more dense and sprawling work on the CD's of his that I've posted previously. Thats not to suggest that this is anything other than brainscrambling. The focus here is sharp and pointed, with voices spluttering and ranting amidst half melodic zapping synthetics (including what sounds like a enraged dwarf), bubbles and zings pop and fling, metallic sonorities snap like mental pincers as effected vocal occasionally surface in this jousting melee. French post-industrialists La Sonorite Jaune on the other hand offer something rather more soupy and tenebrous, with thick nebulous drifts of not-unappealing atmospheric murk through which flit vague tendrils of harmonic activity.
